    John 12:36-50
    Speaker: Lukus Counterman - From the beginning of the signs that Christ performed, he was displaying his glory (John 2:11). He was revealing the Father through his words and works yet he received no general credence. Thi...

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - “The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’” That verse is so familiar that it doesn’t shock us, but it should. That was a radical thing for John to say about a young Galilean carpenter to a bunch of Jewish people who for centuries had offered their sacrificial lambs at the temple! He was in essence saying, "This man is the One whom God has sent to be what all of those thousands of lambs over hundreds of years have symbolized! And He is not only the Lamb that God sent for Israel, but also for the whole world!” May the Lord teach us that it’s not about us but all about Christ. May our lives point to him in word and deed.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - It has been said that that the history of the world hinges on a stable door in Bethlehem, and as John writes the closing of his prologue, he agrees. What does John say happened that changed history? Well, God’s revelation happened. God showed man what He is really like. God’s revelation to man was so spectacular, so magnificent, so glorious that all of history hinges on its introduction onto the scene. You see, up to this point in time, God was only seen shadows and symbols and signs. One theologian said that the revelation of God in the OT was like a pencil sketch. Rough outlines, black and white, foggy detail, but in today’s text, John shows us that God’s revelation has a name. His name is Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ is God on full display.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The Word of God incarnate is the light of the world. He is the true light who shines on all mankind and the question is, how will people respond. Irreligious may refuse to recognize him because he interferes with their rebellion. Religious people on the other hand may reject him because he meddles with their system of self-righteousness. But to those who receive him in faith, he gives the right to be called children of God. May the Lord put a stop to rejection and failure of recognition this morning, and may all who hear the Word receive him in faith.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The Gospel of John is unique in its powerful presentation of Jesus. He is presented as the Logos or the Word who existed before creation. John’s vision of Christ has been used countless times to open the eyes of unbelievers to who Jesus is and the way of redemption. The serious student of John will find that each time he returns to the Gospel, Christ will be a little bigger. May we learn the greatness of Christ as we study together.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - With the renewed call to go to Nineveh Jonah is given a second chance to obey the God from whom he has tried unsuccessfully to flee. Jonah has learned that God is able to deliver anyone, anywhere, but will he take the message of such mercy to the foreign and frightful Assyrians? Does the mercy of God towards him, change him into a merciful person? In Jonah chapter three we will discover the greatness of God in how he can use salty believers with simple messages to bring significant revival to the hearts of sinners.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Do you know and believe that God loves each of us so much that He brings circumstances into our lives to show us our idols? He actually allows difficulties in our lives that reveal our wrong thinking about Him and ourselves. He uses situations to showcase our insecurities and our need for Him. But let’s be honest we don’t always like it! We get frustrated and so we run. We are irritated so we attempt to hide. We withdraw and sulk in our self-pity. We are filled with self-righteousness and sit in judgment of God. But God finds us and specifically reveals our shortcomings and meets us with His grace. His mercy is there for any that make a movement toward Him. God is showcasing His desire to save the lives of all of the main players in the book of Jonah. He wants to save the sailors, the Ninevites, and the prophet. So don’t you think that God wants to save you?

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The Sovereignty of God over a believer through every phase of his life is astounding in Jonah 1:7-17. God had even orchestrated Jonah’s life, Jonah’s rebellion, and Jonah’s consequences so that they would be tools needed to convert sinners. The storm created by Jonah’s rebellion was the perfect backdrop for them to meet the one true God, the One who governed the sea. Do you ever mourn a season of your life that you feel held wasted years with no redeeming qualities? God can use anything! He’s the Master of taking the bits and pieces of our leftovers and making something amazing out of it. He gives “beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness” so that He might be glorified (Isa. 61:3). Have you, like Jonah, mishandled the divine interruptions that have come your way? God can use anything, even the leftovers, for His glory.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - At first glance, the principal character in the book we are studying for the next month seems to be Jonah, but a closer look reveals that the title character in this narrative is God Himself. The Old Testament book called Jonah is not about a whale, a reluctant prophet, or even a perishing people in Nineveh. It is about God who is accomplishing salvation through judgment and mercy. Jonah said it simply (Jonah 2:9) “salvation belongs to the Lord.” If you keep your attention keen and your eyes peeled in these four short chapters, you’ll be overwhelmed and awed to discover God all over again. His attributes, his character, and his ability swim through the entire book. The story opens with the word of the Lord (1:1), centers around acts of the Lord, and concludes with the word of the Lord (4:9-11). From beginning to end, it’s all about him.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman -James began his letter saying he was "a servant of God." Now he adds the complementary calling: he is a servant of sinners. He has written forthrightly, insistently and passionately about what is sinful and what is righteous. In fact, someone has called James's letter "the Ouch! book" because it is so pointed. James makes no apology for that. But why such a passion for righteousness? Because truth is available and must be embraced and lived out. And when it is not, we have a responsibility to be part of a rescue team. When someone wanders from the truth, we have an obligation to seek their recovery and restoration. May the Lord help us with this at Gospel Grace Church.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Thank you for joining us today at Gospel Grace Church. Today we return to the book of James and begin to look at the concluding section of the letter. The word prayer is used six times, and is the theme of this section. An encouragement to prayer is usually the norm to the conclusion of the letters in the New Testament. James, calls the believer to pray in through the times of suffering and praise through the times of good cheer. However, this section goes beyond just a general call to prayer. Those stricken with sickness are asked to call on the pastors of the church to pray over them. The prayer of faith, it is said, will heal the one who is sick. We will spend time understanding this “prayer of faith” that seems to guarantee healing. The passage goes on further asking believers to confess their sins to one another and pray for one another. We will spend time dwelling on the various situations that the believers are called to pray for themselves and for one another. We will also talk about the example of Elijah, and the power of prayer. This passage more than anything else, urges us to pray. If you are here at Gospel Grace today, would you find time to pray with someone before you leave?
